I have seen drawings for the gauge pictured below forrom about 20 years. It was once in the collection of Randy Elzea. It was described as “probably” a WWI German gauge.
The characters on the front of the gauge, beginning at 9 O’Clock are," G SW R&C 46" in previous drawings the “46” were not clear. The gauge looks like a typical German 9x19mm gauge.
The 46 seems to be a date and I suspect this isn’t a German gauge at all.
Can anyone provide any information or thoughts on this gauge???
Does anyone have examples of German 9x19mm chamber gauges from the 1920s or earlier???
